Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the extent to I-which anxiety-related individual difference variables predict anxious responding when individuals experience aversive bodily sensations. Thus, we explore several psychological and behavioral predictors of response to a single 25-sec inhalation of 20% carbon dioxide-enriched air in 70 nonclinical participants. Predictor variables included anxiety sensitivity, suffocation fear, heart-focusedanxiety, and breath-holding duration. Multiple regression analyses indicated that only anxiety sensitivity significantly predicted postchallenge panic symptoms, whereas both anxiety sensitivity and suffocation fear predictedpostchallenge anxiety. These data are in accord with current models of panic disorder that emphasize the role of "fear of fear" in producing heightened anxiety and panic symptoms and help clarify specific predictors of anxiety-related responding to biological challenge.
